Talk about mopping up: THQ Nordic has bought the Kingdoms of Amalur IP as well as the unreleased Copernicus MMO.
The rights were bought from 38 Studios, the company belonging to former baseball star Curt Schilling who was, along with his company, embroiled in a long and arduous court battle after he defaulted on a loan from the Rhode Island state. What a state indeed.
It’s not clear how much THQ Nordic paid nor what it plans to do with the licence – will it finish the work done on the Copernicus MMO and release it? – but it’s an eye-opening purchase nonetheless.
